Polish Potato Pancakes
This, again, is a favorite food of mine (and that of my family). It is a total comfort food. Not at all healthy, but still quite enjoyable.
You can make this as a main dish or serve it as a side dish with a roast. It is enjoyable both ways.
Toppings are very versatile. It can be topped with sour cream or cottage cheese (divine!). Kids may like it with applesauce or other fruit toppings (peaches, fruit cocktail, berries, etc...). A blackberry sauce makes it totally amazing! If you are picky, ketchup or mustard works as well.
